An Onboarding Manager can raise onboarding requests from the service catalog from BMC Helix Digital Workplace Catalog or through web API.

When the onboarding request is created, the request submitter, hiring manager, recruitment manager, and manager get access to the onboarding request. However, only users with the Onboarding Manager role can access the Onboarding Portal and view and manage the onboarding request.
